MIAMI COUNTY — The drug possession case against former 700AMWLW radio personality Lisa M. Wells, 38, has been dismissed with intent to be refiled by Miami County Prosecutor’s Office.

Last September, Judge Jeannine Pratt denied Wells’ motion for treatment in lieu of conviction charge. According to Miami County Prosecutor Tony Kendell, the state dismissed the case on Nov. 29 to add back a previously dismissed OVI charge before it is presented again to a grand jury.

An Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper conducted a traffic stop on Wells on Jan. 25, on Interstate 75 near Piqua for expired registration. According to court records, the trooper also noted that Wells was weaving in her lane and even crossing the lines on each side of her lane. The trooper reportedly saw pills in plain view before searching the vehicle. The trooper seized oxycodone, alprazolam (also known as Xanax), amphetamine and dextroamphetamine.

Wells, an attorney and radio personality from West Chester was a call-in guest on the Bill Cunningham Show on 700 AMWLW. She was charged with two counts of fifth-degree felony possession of drugs, one of which has been dismissed.

At Wells’ treatment in lieu of conviction hearing, Judge Pratt noted that Wells gave statements in her various drug treatment assessments which gave a variety of dates that she last abused opiates prior to seeking treatment last month. Judge Pratt noted that Wells was in violation of the terms and conditions of her bond with her admission of continuing to use opiates on bond.

Wells submitted a 121-page treatment plan and documentation from Wells’ treatment center of Beckett Springs, which allegedly included several statements from doctors she claimed she never met. She also challenged her own treatment plan, which reportedly included a positive drug test. Wells claims she was never informed of the positive drug test by the treatment facility.

Wells also failed to attend group sessions and was found to be apathetic during therapy sessions at the center. According to one of the assessments from which Judge Pratt noted, a doctor removed Wells from a session due to her “sarcastic” statements made during a group session.
